Eskom pulls the plug on load shedding rumours
Eskom has shut down claims by the Democratic Alliance (DA) suggesting that load shedding would make a comeback at the end of this month and in October.
The DA on Thursday said it had received “reliable information” that load shedding could return and called on the power utility to come clean.
Eskom has since issued a statement setting the record straight
